Caption Competition

BBC Berkshire Caption Competition: Week 10

The word is clearly spreading. After a record number of entries last week, our Caption Competition returned with a spring in its step. So with the competition fierce, you again sent us your witty captions, trying to be a winner.

This week's photographic offering to caption featured the Reading football captain Graeme Murty modelling the new Scotland kit.

Playing with Kevin Doyle every week, Murty is well used to having an attractive blonde alongside him, but this one really threatens to upstage the Royals skipper.

This week's winner is Huntley Palmer, who combined his knowledge of Scottish footballing greats and busty glamour models with: "Murty loved it - he'd expected to model the kit next to JOE Jordan - not Katie Price..."

An honourable mention this week to TENNENTS SUPER for the obvious, but subtly funny "The real reason why he chose to play for Scotland became apparent."

Murty strutted his stuff again at the Royal Families' latest charity event, a fashion show at the Madejski Stadium on Wednesday 4 April, featuring Reading players and BBC Radio Berkshire's Joel & Tim!

Proceeds were be donated to Daisy's Dream and Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance.

If you were disappointed this week, have another go next time...we have a new sporting photo for you to caption every Wednesday. Click below to see your efforts in previous weeks.

Why not bookmark the page so you can easily play every week? Then forward the link to friends, family and colleagues so they can have a go too.

And now you've tried your hand at this, why not have a go at BBC Berkshire's Fantasy Football?

The spotlight was on Murty and his bit on the side.

"There was something different about Kitson but Murty just couldn`t put his finger on it."

For once Murty - gave credit to the England player opposite...

Murts gets a sweat-on

Tennents Super
The real reason why he chose to play for Scotland became apparent.

Murty stands to attention and grins like a cheshire cat as he contemplates sharing the bath with his new team mate.

A wry smile apears across Murts' face as the crowd appeals to the fittie to 'GIVE IT TO MURTY!'

David Slough
Why can't all Scottish players be that pretty

Peter H
Murts was happy being a model in the new Scotland shirt, but was confused as to why Stephen Hunt chose to model the away shirt next to him.

The sun that usually shines from Murty's a**e, repositioned itself against the wall as it took a shine to the pretty model beside him.
